Independent Film Night - Amador by Fernando León de Aranoa - Thursday, August 9th @ 6:30pm

Join us 6:30pm, Thursday, August 2nd, for our monthly Independent Film Night. August brings us the heart wrenching film Amador by Spanish director Fernando León de Aranoa. A young woman named Marcela is in financial and familial straights before she finds a summer job caring for a bed-bound elderly man, eponymous Amador, while his family is away. Their rapport is charming but it sadly comes to a sudden close when Amador dies. His death places Marcela in a predicament—if she informs the family of it she’d lose her job, which is something she cannot afford to let happen. I don’t want to give away the ending so I’ll just say that faced with this difficult moral dilemma, Marcela ultimately proves death cannot stop life.

Amador / 2011 / Drama / Spain / Spanish with English Subtitles / 113 min.
